Distance to Closest Star

From Universe Sandbox Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The Distance to Closest Star property of an object represents the distance between the object and the closest Star in the simulation. If there is no star in the simulation, the Distance to Star will read No Stars Present. If the object is the only star in the simulation, the Distance to Closest Star will be zero.

Distance to Closest Star is a read-only property, as it is calculated automatically by Universe Sandbox based on the locations and types of objects in the simulation.
